August 11-16 Living from Love: Tuning Into Your Heart’s Message

“The Heart is symbolic for the centre of our spiritual being–limitless compassion and knowledge beyond the intellect.” Swami Radha

The ground of the Heart is where we can open to inspiration and understanding. In this retreat, we offer practices of reflection, mantra, visualization, silence and breath to deepen a connection to the inner source of love. By listening and becoming receptive to your still, small voice, you can invite healing that clears the way for finer feelings like gratitude and compassion. What does your heart say? And how can listening to its messages improve your relationships–first to yourself, then to those around you?

August 25-30 Power of Presence

What does it mean to be present to the best in yourself, to be open and receptive to intuition and insights beyond everyday-mind? How do you build the bridge to the Divine and then live that inspiration in your daily life? Explore the power of presence through visualization, journaling and breath. This retreat includes our signature workshop, the Straight Walk--a practice of bringing awareness to every step you take in order to see where you are now and where you want to go.

September 22-27 Opening to Compassion

"You can cultivate the positive attributes of kindness and love by laying a strong foundation of understanding of your own life." Swami Radhananda

Being compassionate towards ourselves, those around us and the world requires the willingness and courage to be kind-hearted. How do you live an ideal of compassion in a world that seems to express so much of the opposite? How can you deepen your understanding so kindness and concern can grow? Using practices of visualization, meditation and breath, experience the gift of an open heart.
